we stayed for our 27th anniversary and loved The Lake House. Cathy was as sweet and charming as can be and made us feel right at home. we enjoyed the beautiful location and the southern old florida charm. Cathy made us an amazing breakfast that surpassed our expectations and left us wishing we could have stayed longer!

We have stayed at the Lake House B&B Multiple times over the past 10 years, regardless of were we have lived, and it only gets better each time. Beautiful surroundings, stunning views and a house steeped in rich history (ask your hostess Cathy to show you her photo albums which portrays the history of the Lake House). Interior decorated in...

Cathy the innkeeper provided a clean, comfortable room with a private bath along with a delicious breakfast and pleasant conversation. My husband and I are animal lovers so we...

Very nice place. Large, tastefully decorated room with private bath. I would have rated this higher but for the following. Needs a bit of maintenance. Wall unit air conditioner VERY LOUD -- sounded like an airplane and kicked on every few minutes throughout the night, disrupting our sleep. Shower controls missing cover plates exposing connections into shower wall. Water going...

If you're looking for a Hilton, this B&B is not for you. This quaint old Florida style house is tucked away and has amazing lake front view. Kathy, the owner, provides you with a spacious room decorated antique style. Our king size room had it's own bathroom attached. You will find collectibles throughout the house. Kathy allows pets and has...

If you want a unique experience and love a homey atmosphere, this has it all and more. Cathy is a host who loves what she does and creates a pleasant experience with all of her decorations, candlelight and a wonderful breakfast. This is not for the person who frequents the Ritz Carlton. You need to love dogs if you stay...

The Lake House was built in the early 20th century as a fishing lodge for a wealthy businessman. Much of that charm is still evident in this sprawling old house crammed full of antique furniture and knickknacks. Our bedroom, one of six, was comfortable and clean. The owner, Cathy was a great host and the highlight of our stay was...

What a lucky find! We had planned a fall getaway, initially, to see the Gatlinburg Tn and Asheville, NC areas this past weekend. Our trip needed to be cancelled then modified as we learned about the "hurricane" that was headed that way. We "re-grouped" and decided to travel to the Inverness/Crystal RIver area instead, to check off some attractions on...

Cathy is very nice and the home had beautiful views and and was very relaxing when the dogs were not yapping or getting out. To be fair, Cathy had some friends with emergency situations and she was watching 3 extra dogs.
